His $30.000 ask seemed like an opening. It’s $0.0001 per user, presumably cheaper and less hassle than a trademark lawsuit. Perhaps you could have countered it with an offer of $20.000 if he also stopped calling you a dick.

I don’t know if he was serious though, but if you want to resolve a naming issue amicably, then it probably will involve some compensation based on what that name is worth to you.
